Hillsdale Historic House Tour Visits Future Historic Houses

Hillsdale’s Historic House Tour returns with a twist. This year the tour will visit six “future historic houses”: examples of exemplary 21st century design, and highly energy efficient and green building. The houses range from the boxy and sleek to a wood and window filled home with touches of whimsy and include a certified passive house, a net zero one and an energy-efficient pre-fab house.

A box lunch prepared by Simons Catering is included with the tour and will be served under a tent at the Roeliff Jansen Community Library, which is a green building. During lunch, architects from Hudson-based firm BarlisWedlick will present a talk: Classic and Modern: Designing homes in Columbia County for the 21st Century. Tours of the green features of the library, including solar panels, geothermal, light shelves and light tubes, will be available.

A Patron’s party will be held at a hilltop villa in Hillsdale from 5 pm to 7 pm on Sunday evening, August 13. This event honors the homeowners who opened their houses for the tour and purchasers of Patron tickets at $100 per person or Sponsor tickets at $150 per person are invited to attend. Designed by architect Dennis Wedlick of BarlisWedlick, with interiors by Matthew White of White Webb, Otium is inspired by the ancient houses of Italy with 21st century elements, making it a true modern villa and one of the future historic houses of Hillsdale.

Sponsor tickets include the tour, entry to the Patron’s Party and the sponsor’s name or business listed in all event material. For more information contact hillsdalehousetour@gmail.com.
